Reiki is a Japanese word meaning “universal life energy”.
Those who practice Reiki believe that energy is constantly all around us and that it can be harnessed to improve all aspects of a persons health.
This practice was first started by Dr. Mikao Usui and has been passed down through generations.
Reiki is an excellent form of holistic medicine that can help people heal in today’s stressful, fast paced world.
- Reiki should only be performed by a professional practitioner that has been properly trained. A session generally starts with a series of questions as to what needs to be healed in the body. The recipient is almost always in a lying down position, but if the pain is too great when lying down the practitioner will make sure the client is in a very comfortable position and is as relaxed as possible.
- The Reiki healer starts by placing their hands on or above certain spots throughout the body, and will focus on the areas that are of greater concern.
- The idea is to re establish a natural flow of energy throughout the human body, letting the body heal itself. Sometimes the energy flow can be blocked which poses a problem for people with injuries or other ailments.
Those with lower “life force energy” tend to feel sluggish or stressed out, and those with flowing energy can more easily have a positive outlook on life, and feel healthy and calm.
Even if you have no apparent injuries, Reiki is an excellent form of and rejuvenation. Patients on prescription drugs have even reported lessening of the drug’s side effects after attending regular Reiki sessions.
Reiki treatments have begun to gain popularity in the last ten to fifteen years. It is a simple and gentle treatment that everyone can benefit from, and it can have remarkable results.
